People with BMW for car raffle
BACK ROW: Big Sister staff Erin Barfield, Amanda Bowen, Sarah Amaya, Aly Bowman, Martina Chavarro, Amanda Roberts; FRONT SEAT: Big Sister Angela Desai and Big Sister Sandra Walker; BACK SEAT: Little Sisters Brittney-Ann and Aanari; IN FRONT OF CAR: Lisa Hughes of WBZ-TV/CBS Boston, Melissa Steffy of Herb Chambers BMW of Boston, Big Sister of the Year Tracy-Jane Pierre and her mother, Deborah Re of Big Sister Boston

The staff, Big and Little Sisters, and friends of Big Sister in the photo above may not be driving off in that brand new 2021 BMW 430i convertible, but our grand prize winner could be! Five-time ticket purchaser, Joseph Maggiore, wasn’t expecting to get a call from WBZ-TV/CBS Boston news anchor Lisa Hughes this afternoon, but he did–and not only is he celebrating his BIG win, he’s celebrating his 90th birthday today! Now, the big question is: will he take the car or the cash?

And the winners are:

Runner up prize #1: $1,000

Thank you to everyone who purchased ticket(s) in this year’s 33rd annual Car Raffle! Because of you, we sold out of all 1,951 tickets for the first time in Car Raffle history. This is especially meaningful to Big Sister Boston as we celebrate our 70th anniversary this year because the 1,951 cap on tickets is a nod to our founding year. The proceeds raised from the raffle will directly benefit our mentoring and enrichment programs for girls, making them the real winners today.

We also wish to extend our thanks to: 

Lisa Hughes and WBZ-TV/CBS Boston

The Boston Globe

100 Summer Street

Beasley Media Group, iheartradio, and Mix104.1

Cityscapes/TransPLANTEDed Roaming Greenhouse

And of course… Herb Chambers BMW of Boston!
